Camera Battery Backup

Canon Powershot g10 black digital camera

Specs: Macintosh
I have a Canon Powershot G10 and I am interested in
taking timelapses and long exposure photographs. I
have the Canon ac adapter but this isnt useful when
Im away from a power outlet, so I can about the idea
of building a battery backup using RC batteries. The
RC batteries run at the same voltage as my camera
so I dont see a problem there. My question is are
there any problems I dont see? and how would I go
about splicing my dc plug cable to allow me to hook
up the batteries? Thanks

The following should work. Buy the RC battery connector pair (known as a Tamiya assuming a standard RC car battery).
Try a hobby shop. Cut the camera power cable in a desired
location, Connect the end similar to the RC battery (female) to
the end connected to the power supply. To the end connected
to the camera connect the other connector (male). You will have
to determine the correct polarity.
